Blank doc shows - yet print and text boxes show on print preview??



  • 1. Word crashes in Citrix
    We are running Word XP on Citrix servers. I recently upgraded a printer on the network, and now the users are experiencing crashes when: 1) they go to print, and choose options so that they can select a different tray; 2) sometimes when they select "Labels and Envelopes". Anyone else experiencing this? Any solutions?
  • 2. Weird Error for Word/Excel
    I have a user that is getting the following error, "The document name or path is not valid". This is only when she tries to access files on the network. But she only gets this error the first time she tries to open up the document, if she OKs the error and tries to open the file again it opens just fine. We are using MS Office XP. Thanks, Drew
  • 3. Word 2002 hangs when printing a document with tables
    Hi, I have encountered a strange problem. It involves Word 2002 and Word 2000. Basically what is happening (or in this case not), is that when trying to print a large document in Word 2002 it causes Word to hang (tested on 2 different machines both running Word 2002). If I print the same document using Word 2000 it works fine. I have established the problem has something to do with tables within the document, as when removed it then prints fine. I have run repairs on both Word and the document in question to no avail. I'm not sure if it is a version incompatibility or whether the document is indeed corrupt in some way. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks, -jp

Wonder if anyone knows how to overcome this. I have opened a template 
document in Word2003 and none of the text or text boxes is showing. However 
if i go to print preview I can see the entire document. Have I accidentally 
turned on some bizarre formatting option? Cheers for any help

In Word, click on View | Print Layout.  Then click on Tools | 
Options | View tab | check the "Drawings" box and uncheck the 
"Picture placeholders" box | Print tab | check the "Drawing 
objects" box | OK.
